On Sunday afternoon, Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell was knocked around pretty good. From ankle injury to a knee injury to an eventual concussion, Campbell couldn’t finish the game and was eventually replaced by Brandon Weeden who will likely be the Browns starting quarterback in Week 13, this according to head coach Rob Chudzinski:

#Browns HC Chud said QB Jason Campbell has not been ruled out, but chances are Brandon Weeden will start this week.

Campbell of course will need to pass the NFL’s mandated concussion test, but even if he does so, that’s not to say he’ll be fully healed in regards to his other injuries.

Weeden’s about the last guy Browns fans want to see on the field, but Cleveland does have a plus matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars as they fight to stay out of the AFC North’s cellar.

The former Oklahoma State Cowboy has six touchdowns and seven interceptions through seven inconsistent games this season. He also has four fumbles, though, has lost only one.

He’ll face the Jaguars 24th ranked defense on Sunday, assuming he draws the start.

    T J shut the fuck up and play the game. We as a team stunk the joint up. it was my fondest hope that we had seen the last of Brandon Weeden but alas and alack not to be so just suck it up, princesses, and get on with giving it 100% every play.
    I hope Caleb is a fast learner
